I am very pleased to share with you the current condition of Haiti’s youth and the efforts of At-Risk Children Foundation to make a difference in their lives.”

Haiti is a land rich in culture, and history. For decades the poverty has increased due to poor governing and a lack of opportunities. Prior to the earthquake of January 12, 2010, 200,000 plus children lived in orphanages. The devastation of the earthquake has left millions homeless, and thousands of more children orphaned.

At-Risk Children Foundation has chosen to view the aftermath of this disaster and the crisis it has created as an opportunity to build a stronger and more productive country. Our efforts continue and we are now focused on the following actions.

♦ Provide a safe and secure environment for our children at risk.
♦ Provide an educational program that is focused on the future success of our youth.
♦ Encourage community building and self-sustainable projects that contribute to the whole village.
♦ Create ”Support and Reinforcement of the Community“ program targeted at
improving the life of orphans and the most vulnerable children.
♦ Educate and provide training that focuses on the protection and improvement of the environment.

Some of these goals are immediate as well as long term. We welcome visitors to our website and we have updated our current success and outlined our future goals. Thank you for considering to support our efforts by becoming involved as a volunteer or donate to our financial goals to meet our vision and mission to make a real difference in the lives of these precious children.
